to come out with some type of his own statement about where he wants to go with the nsa controversy and the transparency going on with its oversight. >> yes, thomas. we've been working our sources within the administration and on capitol hill. we have a bit of a picture of what the president plans to do. he can go on offense, anticipating, i'm sure, about the nsa leaks and the programs that the intelligence community has been undertaking to collect data and so forth. by going on offense, the president is expected to announce that he has plans to take steps to make reforms to some of those programs. with the intention of bringing greater transparency and to build more public confidence. these will be new steps, and he will lay them out in the specifics, but that's the overarching idea, how to create more confidence when there have been so many questions in the public about what these programs can do, the scope of them, the magnitude, and how to bring about more transparency. what could be declassified? we've seen steps toward that already with some of the details of these programs no
earlier this year, so he still faces the possibility of being returned to jail. >>> the nsa surveillance network can reportedly see about 75% of all u.s. internet traffic. this is according to this report out today in the "wall street journal." they've been investigating. so this report says that the nsa sometimes keeps the content of e-mails between u.s. citizens and then filters some domestic phone calls that use internet connections. the nsa has recently stated that it only, and their word is touches, touches 1.6% of the world's internet data. john jo joe johns, let me bring you in on this one from washington. what does this "wall street journal" report tell us as far as how the nsa is filtering e-mail and internet traffic? >> it sounds like nsa has a second shot. some of this we already knew. the nsa asks the telecommunications companies, brooke, to give it streams of traffic that the telecom company reasonably believes to contain foreign intelligence information. by the way, that's not everything that happens on the internet or on telephones. but it's still a lot of information. the
're basically getting a newhe roommate, the nsa, and you cann kiss the 4th amendment good-bye. we know companies like microsoft are willing to cooperate with nsa. a if you report says local law l enforcement agencies are taking information surveillance fromsa the nsa and arresting americans because of that surveillance. what you're doing is inviting the government into your home. that, to me, is very dangerous. >> wayne, you have to be careful what you wear when you're watching tv. they might flip the switch and v watch you right back? >> that's true. and i agree.hey it's a terrible thing to have the government watching you for anything. federal geet the government out of awful our lives. however, nobody is forcing you once again to buy that particular television that has a that camera in it.at c it's like buying a gun. you know a gun can kill somebody, might even kill you if you own the gun. so you got to be careful.n. so if you buy that television that has that camera, you're taking that risk. you don't have to -- wayne -- nobody is forcing you, but you buy the tv with the expectation thatpect
the fun way, from phillips'. >>> new this morning, a top official is pushing back against a report the nsa frequently violated privacy rules after the "washington post" published documents released by edward snowden saying the nsa overstepped its legal authority thousands of times each year since congress granted it broad new powers in 2008. the number was extremely low compared with overall activities. they are vowing more oversight. joining me now is ed o'keefe and wanda summers. public affairs and media affairs releasing this statement. nsa's foreign collection activities are continually audited and overseen internally and externally. when nsa makes a mistake, the agency reports the issue internally and to federal overseers and aggressively gets to the bottom of it. nancy pelosi calls this extremely disturbing. ed, you cover congress. what are you hearing from reactions? >> nancy pelosi and dianne feinstein, the type of people who would know what's going on because they serve on the intelligence committee. she has been on the intelligence committee for years and has been receiving them
to you. >> about time. thank you very much. >>> let's talk about the nsa. another revelation came out yesterday afternoon and it turns out that they have -- they have released additional information over the past -- since 2008 on things that have gone wrong in the nsa collection. for example, there was a redacted page which is unredacted and classified yesterday that revealed that we have collected 56,000 wholly domestic communications each year. so this is done, nothing was necessarily done with it. nothing was exposed by it. but these were collected and the fisa court judge did not know about it and he rebuked the nsa for doing that and they said they were unintentional errors. >> we have been talking for a while about the nsa, how they're saying trust us, we're not doing anything illegal. the stuff that was declassified yesterday said they didn't break some laws. they violated -- the nsa violated the constitution three times in three years. violated the constitution because they did as brian said go through our e-mails, domestic e-mails, rather than just the foreign stuff. remember
calls even more. we will have the latest into the investigation of the nsa and what the loss of privacy means to you. >>> we start this hour with a fox news alert what may be the fist major conflict of the next presidential campaign. it is here already because the rnc is threatening to blacklist two major networks unless they change their ways. welcome, everybody to "america live." i'm jamie colby. >> i'm gregg jarrett. right now, the summer meeting of the republican national committee, rnc, under way in boston, the committee voting to hold cnn and nbc accountable if they indeed go through with plans to air films on the life of hillary clinton. the former first lady senator secretary of state and now early front-runner for the democratic party's nomination for president in 2016. rn krr rnc chairman reince priebus getting a standing ovation today. >> we said to the media with a united voice that a network that spends millions of dollars to spotlight hillary clinton is a network with an obvious bias. that's a network that won't be hosting a single republican primary debate.

, we do so. >> safe to say that we learned about these threats through the nsa program? >> we have some mechanisms where we can track a phone number or an e-mail address that we know is connected to some sort of terrorist threat. and, you know, that information is useful. but, what i've said before, i want to make sure i repeat. and that is, we should be skeptical about the potential encroachments on privacy. none of the revelations show that government has abused these powers, but they're pretty significant powers. and i've been talking to congress and civil libertarians and others about are there additional ways that we can make sure that the people know. no one is listening to your phone call. >> were you surprised that russia granted snowden asylum? >> i was disappointed. because, you know, even though we don't have an extradition treaty with them, traditionally we have tried to respect if there's a law breaker or an alleged law braeaker in their country. we evaluate it and we try to work with them. they didn't do that with us and in some ways it's reflective of some underlying chal
